Our Theme for the month of Feb. will be : Light
**I will be sending home a suggestion sheet today with theme related activities.** Feel free to try some of these activities with your children at home!
Throughout the month of February we will be learning about Light. We will be reading stories related to various types of Light. (Both fiction and non-fiction). We will be learning about shadows and we will look for our own shadows outside. We will also make shadow puppets.
We will also learn about how lights work. In Science we will be taking a part a flashlight and observing the parts before we put it back together. We will also learn about fireworks, candles, lanterns, traffic lights, holiday lights, natural lights in the sky and electricity.
This month we also celebrate Groundhogs Day, Lunar New Year (The Year of the Pig), Valentine’s Day and President’s Day. We will learn about Presidents (especially Lincoln and Washington).
Happy New Year to all! We are looking forward to a wonderful month of learning in January.
